Confirmed with a Ducati NA rep that it won’t come with an auto blipper. I’d rather spend a few thousand more and get the V4. A few pics from the show.

Who really gives a **** about an "auto blipper" ??? The thing comes with UP and DOWN Ducati Quick Shift - just like on the 1299. And if you 959 owners think you'll just add it to your bike, think again... you'll need the ECU, throttle bodies, stacks and associated plumbing and associated shift switch and wiring.
All in all for an extra $3.5K for the CORSE over the regular, you're getting an Ohlins upgrade all around, the DQS U/DN shift, limited number and paint scheme. I'll get one used in a couple years...

Calm down Dingo. Auto blipper = down quick shifter. To translate further for you, it will only come with an up quick shifter.

If I were any calmer I’d be asleep... an auto blipper is a device that pulses the throttle before the shift of a lower gear - but only the throttle pulse the blipper handles... that’s my understanding of the term. Let’s just call it for what it is, since we’re intelligent adults- DQS.

And are you saying the new 959 CORSE does Not come with Up and Down DQS? You’re wrong if u are saying that...

@Dingo, you're arguing semantics, but the widely accepted term for the feature that automatically blips the throttle for upshifts is indeed "auto blipper" - nothing new since its inception.

By the way, no where on any article or product detail page shows the Corse having Up and Down DQS. So now its his word vs yours.

Following 2~3 months, no official published confirmation about the 2018 Panigale 959 Corse having a Downshifting Auto blipper QS.
